Something to rave about
A NEW photographic exhibition at ECU provides a unique insight into Perth’s rave and dance culture scene.
Modern Day Tribe – Performance is a photographic journey looking at the commodification of rave culture as it transformed from an underground scene to become part of today’s mainstream youth culture in the form of electronic dance festivals.
On display is a visual archive of live dance images and contemporary urban landscapes that were once sites of rave culture. The images span 15 years.
The exhibition by ECU Photomedia lecturer Duncan Barnes is on show at Spectrum Project Space, Mt Lawley ECU Campus, from October 8 to 15.
